Let's Make It
1
Sift together cornstarch, icing sugar and flour. With wooden spoon, blend in butter until soft smooth dough forms.

Shape into 1 inch (2.5 cm) balls. If dough is too soft to handle, cover and chill 30-60 minutes. Place 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) apart on ungreased cookie sheet, flatten with lightly floured fork.

Alternatively, roll dough to 1/4 inch (6 cm); cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Decorate with candied cherries, colored sprinkles or nuts if desired.
4
Bake in 300 deg F (150 deg C) oven for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.
